I cycle to this point quite often. It is the first 1000ft hill in the southern Pennines and the view is worth the pain of getting up. On clear days you can see the Welsh mountains!

Fantastic views from this vantage point and well worth the visit. No tea shops, ice cream vans or car parking charges! Sunrise or sunset would be the best time to visit on a fine day.

Take your binoculars- night or day ! Really good for seeing all the way to the end of the world. If you know anyone who thinks it's flat, bring them here for a laugh.

A great place to begin and finish a walk around this beautiful part of Derbyshire. It is a National Trust carpark and so is well used throughout the week and especially at weekends.
